Sustainable Transport

Cities designed for people

City Science provides innovative analytical tools for data-driven evaluation of sustainable travel potential and network design. Our analytics can support the development of LCWIPs, Travel Plans and Sustainable Transport Strategies. Providing evidence for the development of attractive, desirable, place-making initiatives, City Science metrics can tell you where demand is highest, how the network currently serves it, and what to consider to ensure successful schemes. Integrating cutting-edge research and statistical behaviour surveys, City Science tools underpin the robust evidence you need to secure investment for sustainable travel, promote cycling and walking and take active steps to improving air quality and health.
